Self-Assessment: My Own Eyes

Updated on March 16, 2018

Samuel Malik Canty: the Word Bird. I am the author of Four Poetry Books, I understand my Purpose, and my words are my proof...


Through My Own Eyes, I now look at me...

No longer affected, interested in the opinions of others...

No longer living to please those who are carriers of the selfish-disease.

Through My Own Eyes…The king within smiles again.

Through My Own Eyes…The heart beats with joy again.

Through My Own Eyes… Feel good, look good, ego-less and blessed.

I like myself, care about myself and I believe in myself.

Through My Own Eyes... I see a person with a plan, I see the image of God in my mirror as my shadow gets bigger.

Through My Own Eyes I see my retouched wings learning how to elevate on the winds of faith...

Low flying, heart no longer crying only gliding...

Looking forward, looking ahead and back in touch, back to devotion of covering miles of ground until I retrieve my lost pieces of my dreams…

Waiting…Waiting…Waiting, for that day, that moment and that time when I can be like Daniel and come out of the Lion’s Den and start living again.

Through My Own Eyes… I see all types of possibilities if I continue to Believe in Me.

Retouched wings and ready to fly….Through My Own Eyes.

Confidence soaring and heart is now roaring...
